snap the plug into place.
2. Replace the battery cover by sliding it upwards.

for 10-12 hours. After initial charge, a maintenance charge of 8 hours should be sufficient.

Charging of the Handset Batteries

The handset of your cordless telephone is powered by rechargeable batteries. It charges automatically
whenever handset is in its charger. You should charge the batteries for 10-12 hours when you first receive
your phone. You will know the batteries need charging when:

• The low battery message is displayed.


• The handset seems completely dead, the LCD is completely clear and does not activate when you
press the keys.

IMPORTANT: BEFORE YOU BEGIN make sure that you have installed and fully charged the handset
batteries.

Pre-Installation

Answer the following questions for the instructions that are appropiate for you.

• Do you have a stand-alone router?

If yes, please click here

Helpful Hint: Do you have more than one computer connected to the Internet? If so, you have a
router.

• Do you have a modem with a built-in router?

If yes, please click here

Helpful Hint: Some Internet Service Providers (ISP) supply combinations modem/routers. Please
look on the back of your modem, if it has multiple ports, it is a modem with a built in router. If you
are not sure, please call your ISP and ask them if it is a standard modem or a modem with a built in
router and follow the appropriate instructions.

If the answer is no to both questions please proceed.

Helpful Hint: If you purchased this VTech broadband phone from a retail store, visit our Retail Activation

Installation Without A Router
Warning: Do not route the ethernet cable to outdoors, and ensure that you are using a safety approved DSL
or Cable modem with proper electrical isolation.

1. Unplug the power cord from your Cable or DSL modem (the device your ISP provided which
provides high-speed Internet). Make sure that you turn your computer off and that you do NOT plug
in your IP 8100 broadband telephone until instructed to do so.

Helpful Hint: The modem should be powered off for at least 10 minutes. If it is turned off for a
shorter period of time, it may "remember" old information that will prevent it from working properly.

2. Disconnect all cables between your Cable or DSL modem and your computer.
3. Connect one end of the yellow ethernet cable to the yellow port, labeled "PC/LAN", located on the
back of the IP 8100 base unit and connect the other end of the yellow cable to the ethernet port of
your computer.
4. Connect one end of the blue ethernet cable to the blue port, labeled "WAN", located on the back of
the IP 8100 base unit and connect the other end of the blue cable to the ethernet port on your cable
or DSL modem.
5. Reconnect power cord to the modem then turn the modem on. Please wait until all lights on the
modem stop blinking.

Helpful Hint: This should take a few minutes, but may take as long as 10 minutes.

6. Plug the power cord into the power port located on the bottom or your IP 8100 and the other end
into the electrical outlet. This turns the IP 8100 broadband telephone on.

Helpful Hint: DO NOT interrupt this registration process by unplugging the power or by using the
handsets until the READY indicator light on the front of IP 8100 base has gone from flashing yellow
to a steady green.
Helpful Hint: Use only the power cord provided in this package; using an older power cord can
damage the broadband telephone.

7. Turn your computer on, and check your computer to see if your Internet is working, try to visit any
website. If your Internet is working, please proceed to STEP 9. If not, please proceed to STEP 8.
8. Cable Users
If you receive Internet access through a Cable modem, you may need to register the IP 8100 with
your ISP. Please contact them to update your information; you will likely need your WAN MAC
address, which is located on the bottom of the IP 8100. Once your ISP has updated your account,
proceed to step 9.

--OR--

DSL Users
If you have DSL and are required to enter a user name and password (PPPoE) when accessing the
Internet, you may be required to authenticate the IP 8100.
